Hillside’s own, Jean Sherrard takes us on another delightful afternoon of unconventional Christmas stories, poems and musical cheer in –
Short Stories Live! Another Rogue’s Christmas

From Seven O’ clock to Eleven in the evening
Hillside formally invites all gentlemen and ladies
of the Upper-School to
HILLSIDE’S GRAND CHRISTMAS JUBILEE!
Organized By the youth, for the youth, and led by Daniel Riesco, we shall be holding a ceremonious event, which we call
THROUGH THE AGES
Which celebrates American culture and music throughout the 20th century, beginning in the roaring 1920s and progressing forward to the 1990s. We humbly suggest wearing appropriate attire from any relevant decade that you desire.
Students are allowed to bring one guest each.
In order to attend, each guest must have Hillside’s Guest Waiver signed by the appropriate staff at his or her school and have turned the waiver in to Susan Wedgwood by the morning of Thursday, December 20. The Hillside Guest Waiver can be found on the website or by clicking HERE and is available on the table next to the copy machine in the hall. Invite your friend, sibling, uncle, or romantic interest – just make sure that s/he has the waiver signed and it has been turned in to Susan by the morning of the ball, Thursday, December 20!
Students shall soon receive the invitation, including details on bringing delicious confectionaries to the potluck.
Many regards to all,
Danny Riesco, Yule Ball Coordinator
GAMES AND OTHER DIVERTING AMUSEMENTS
Here at HILLSIDE’S GRAND JUBILEE we offer such amusing diversions as the following games.
Rob Your Neighbor (of his present!)—In which presents brought and wrapped are placed evenly around the circle, and when one rolls a six using a DICE, one may either take or steal a present from a conniving adversary.
Improvisational Games—In which our host Mr. Riesco leads a series of relevant improvisational dramatics.
Dancing—In which the youth of the event may participate in a DANCE of the ever-changing popular music of the 20th century—from THE CHARLESTON to THE TWIST.
And one last enthralling, superb, incredible EVENT—which shall remain secret until the end of the evening!
